stapvars — systemtap variables

Description

The following sections enumerate the public variables provided by standard tapsets installed, (the installation path is show in the stappaths (7) manual page). Each variable is described with a type, and its behavior/restrictions. The syntax is the same as printed with the stap option -p2. Examples:

example1:long
Variable "example1" contains an integer.
example2:string [long]
Variable "example2" is an array of strings, indexed by integers.

Argv

argc:long
Contains the value of the $# value: the number of command line arguments passed to the systemtap script. It is initialized with an implicit begin(-1) probe.
argv:string [long]
Contains each command line argument as a string. argv[1] will equal @1 if there was at least one command line argument. Arguments beyond #32 are not transcribed, and produce a warning message within the begin(-1) probe that initializes this array.

Null

NULL:long
Simply defined as the number 0.
